  • Texas Instruments – I Feel Bad For Saying This, But I’m Just Not Having Any Fun Anymore (2011)
    By on April 6th, 2011 | 120 Comments120 Comments Comments


    genre: Emo/Screamo/Dude-Rock
    country: USA
    notes: Texas Instruments is a group of friends from Kansas City, MO playing emo and post-hardcore influenced screamo. They have an intensely unique style. The recent addition of two more members definitely makes TI have  a fuller sound. This is their newest demo which improves greatly upon past recordings. They’ll be touring the US during the summer so definitely support them if you can. They live and breathe DIY.

  • In Braille – Winter Demo (2010)
    By on March 16th, 2011 | 117 Comments117 Comments Comments


    genre: Screamo
    country: USA
    notes: In Braille is a screamo band stationed in Austin, TX. To my knowledge this is their first release. They remind me a bit of Toru Okada and A Silhouette. DIY recordings, mostly clean guitar, and cry baby vox; some of the best elements of screamo. Band fucking rules hard.

    genre: USA

    notes: Barrow is a four-piece from Greensboro, North Carolina playing heavy, textured, emotional music. They’re a perfect mixture of screamo, post-hardcore, and hardcore. Reminding at times of La Dispute and other times of Titain/Celeste. Barrow brings a unique flavor of music that will leave you drooling for more.

    genre: Hardcore/Screamo
    country: USA
    notes:  Means To An End is a newly formed screamo band Pittsburgh, PA. They’re on the more hardcore/chaotic side of screamo though. The recording style fits the band perfectly and it’s definitely great to have new bands out on the scene fucking ass. Recommended for fans of Comadre and Seeing Means More. Thanks so much to Nate for the links!

  • Bears – Todos Caerán Split (2011)
    By on February 10th, 2011 | 122 Comments122 Comments Comments

    genre: Screamo/Hardcore
    country: Australia/Canada
    notes: Bears (not to be confused with Bears!) is from Tasmania, AU. They combine elements of hardcore and screamo to perfection. The vocals are a mix of spoken word and screamed parts that creates a very unique sound. They remind me a tad of Calculator. Todos Caerán is from Edmonton, Canada (Alberta). They’re a bit more chill and heavy, having a post-rock type feel with very emotional screams. Bears and Todos compliment each other very well which makes the release more than just a collection of random songs and more a unified piece of art. This release for me is an early contender for best split of the year.

    genre: Screamo
    country: Spain
    notes: ¡Silencio, Ahora, Silencio! is a rad band from Madrid. Stylistically reminds me a bit of Gone With The Pain with a hint of Louise Cyphre.  Mostly chaotic, but sometimes melodic. This band is absolutely amazing in every way and you don’t want to miss this release!
